But the wisdom from above is first of all pure.  It is also peace loving, gentle at all times, and willing to yield to others.  It is full of mercy and good deeds.  It shows no favoritism and is always sincere.  James 3:17 NLT 

What is described here is the attitude that grace brings to a man or woman who has actually received God’s gift of grace.  This gives some definition to Philippians 2:5 NIV   Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus.  When God’s grace touches the human soul, thinking becomes transformed.  The wisdom from above is first of all pure.  That means – unadulterated, uncontaminated, clean and wholesome. With that in place there is no condemnation towards yourself or others.  Now that is a new creation in Jesus the Christ.  The emotions that follow the wisdom from above – peace loving, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy, good deeds, shows no favoritism and is always sincere.  This is a glimpse into what is called eternal life and what it looks like right where we live.  Today, If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to himJames 1:5 NIV. Enjoy!
